Welded T-Handle Brake (WTHB)

Welded T-handle Brake is available for use on the RWM S65 and S75 series. The T-handle is hand twisted to squeeze the hub of the wheel and prevent rotation.


FICWB Brake

Field Installable Cam Wheel Brake (FICWB)

Depressing the pedal engages a non-skid pad against the wheel. Deactivate by moving the foot pedal in the opposite direction. Our field installable Cam Wheel Brakes for the 75 & 76 Series are available for roller, ball and tapered bearings on 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” wheels.

Depressing the pedal engages a nonskid pad against the wheel. Deactivate by moving the foot pedal in the opposite direction. Available on all Kingpinless and Maintenance Free Casters.


PCWB

Poly Cam Brake (PCWB)

Depressing the pedal compresses a polyurethane pad against a non-skid metal pad which prevents the wheel from rotating. Adjustments can be made to increase or decrease pressure against the
wheel. Also, adjustments can be made to compensate for wear of wheel over time. Available on all Kingpinless and Maintenance Free Casters.

Face Contact Wheel Brake (FCWB)

The face contact wheel brake is engaged by compressing the brake shoe against the face of the wheel by turning a T-handle screw.
